A QUILTER IS BORN

This tote and quilt was made by my friend here, she is the one that did the quilt along with me also.




She actually, came up with this design (even though this design is out there) in her head and over the phone we did the dimensions of each square. She is sharp as a tack and a natural at quiting. This is one amazing gal and this quilt is absoutely beautiful when you see it up close.

  2. Isn't it great to introduce someone to something new that they like to do? I'm sure you are a very good teacher, too. You are always so positive and enthusiastic.

  5. The colors of the fabrics are lovely together. Quilting with a friend, in person or over the phone, is unbeatable.

  11. They look lovely, Barb, and it's always nice to see new quilters. It doesn't look like there's going to be a lull in enthusiasm for quilting anytime soon, like there was in the 60's and 70's. I have a favor to ask, though, could you possibly make your pictures a bit larger please? These are practically thumbnail sized and they don't enlarge when you click on them. My old eyes need nice big pictures to truly appreciate your lovely quilts. 8)

    Thanks!

  13. With a teacher like you, I"m not surprised she did a good job. I know you usually make your photos large, so these small ones are an exception, but I did find myself wishing I could see the quilt larger than this!
